Subsequently, the developer is splitting it into three blocks. It’s going through council now. It sold six months ago, but settlement went through this month,” Mr Rowland said.He said thinking outside the box had paid off for the owners.“If we didn’t look at that three-way split, it would have sold for about $950,000,” Mr Rowland said. The most expensive home sold in Fallon St previously was a 607sq m block for $715,000 in July last year. The 1960s home was elevated to capture city views. It also had alfresco decks, a pool and multiple living areas. So far, including the most recent sale, 29 homes on the street have sold for more than $400,000, according to CoreLogic property records. Fourteen of those recorded sales were above $500,000, four were above $600,000, two were above $700,000, and one – 85 Fallon St – was above $1 million. 85 Fallon Street, Everton Park.A Brisbane home landed about $200,000 more than expected after advice that its two blocks had the potential to be split into three.The 1225sq m property at 85 Fallon St, Everton Park, has settled for $1.15 million after a six-month contract.Agent Tristan Rowland, of Place Aspley, had marketed the property as “the best splitter block to be offered in years” that was “just begging to be reconfigured to three lots”. last_img read more

Bale could face Monaco – AVB

first_img Villas-Boas refused to discuss Bale’s future on Saturday, however he insists the £80million-rated winger will be training again after Tottenham have returned to England. “He is going to be fit to join the team for training on Wednesday,” he said. “There is a big possibility he could be fit for Monaco. “He hasn’t done any training with the team yet but in all of the pre-season friendlies we had before he was involved. “We are confident he will be able to join us.” But, quizzed repeatedly about Bale’s future, Villas-Boas fell back on the same phrase. “I won’t comment on anything. I am so sorry,” he said. “I can’t speak about speculation.” How long that situation lasts is open to debate. Speculation will probably go on longer than the arguments over the surface, which Villas-Boas insisted was only playable due to the work of his own groundsman, Darren Baldwin. In Hong Kong as a matter of course as Villas-Boas prefers to have his own groundsman look at every surface Spurs play on, Baldwin was supposed to return home on Thursday. However, once it became obvious today’s matches would not take place without some dramatic work following Wednesday’s deluge, Baldwin stayed on. “The game only went ahead because our groundsman did great work for the Premier League,” he said. “He deserves massive credit for allowing the tournament to continue. I hope the Premier League repay him in some way.” Manchester United have already cancelled their planned open training session on Sunday and with heavy rain falling during Manchester City’s encounter with Sunderland, there is extreme doubt Monday’s friendly with Kitchee FC will take place. At least Jermain Defoe had a good night, netting a hat-trick after being selected as a lone front-man in the absence of an alternative, supported by Clint Dempsey. “I enjoy playing in that position,” said Defoe. “The prospect of more strikers being brought in doesn’t bother me. In fact I would welcome it because we needed one last season.” Bale was again a spectator in Hong Kong as Tottenham recorded a 6-0 Barclays Asia Cup thrashing of South China. The Welshman has failed to recover from a buttock injury, although conspiracy theorists point to the timing of his absence, which has coincided with intense speculation about a bid from Real Madrid. Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed he expects Gareth Bale to be back in training on Wednesday and could be in line to face Monaco at the weekend. Press Associationlast_img read more

The Badgers were able to hold off St. Cloud State for the rest of the period before scoring an empty-net goal to ice the game, winning 5–3.Women’s Hockey: Badgers bounce back from border battle to sweep Minnesota StateThe University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team hosted the Minnesota State Mavericks this past weekend with hopes to respond in Read…In the latter matchup of the two-game set, Wisconsin came out flying, scoring two goals in the first 2:19 of game time.

Fantasy Football Injury Updates: Julio Jones, Adam Thielen, Golden Tate, more impact Week 14 WR rankings

first_imgWEEK 14 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIs Julio Jones playing Week 14?After Dan Quinn said earlier in the week that Jones’ Week 14 availability was “trending upward,” Jones got in a limited practice Wednesday as he attempts to return from a shoulder injury that held him out of game action on Thanksgiving. The Falcons play at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday against the Panthers.Jones’ return would knock each of the remaining Atlanta receivers down a notch in the pecking order, with Calvin Ridley becoming a boom-or-bust WR3, Russell Gage dropping to a PPR FLEX option, and Christian Blake falling out of fantasy consideration.WEEK 14 DFS LINEUPS:DK Cash | DK GPP | FD Cash | FD GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPAdam Thielen injury updateAfter Thielen practiced in limited fashion in Week 13 but then missed Monday night, it appeared his hamstring injury may have gotten worse. He missed practice both Wednesday and Thursday and looks in doubt for Week 14 against the Lions.The biggest beneficiary of Thielen’s absence remains tight end Kyle Rudolph, who’s a borderline fantasy starter whenever Thielen doesn’t play. Stefon Diggs remains the only Minnesota WR worth using if Thielen is out Sunday.WEEK 14 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endGolden Tate injury newsPat Shurmur said Wednesday that Tate is “trending up” in his quest to be available for Monday Night Football in a revenge game against the Eagles. Tate missed Week 13 due to a concussion. He was a full participant in Thursday’s practice, so assuming his concussion is a non-issue protocol wise, he should be good to go for Monday night.The Eagles have a bad secondary, which makes Tate appealing, but Eli Manning is likely to start for Daniel Jones. It’s not obvious whether that’s an upgrade or downgrade, but it adds a layer of uncertainty after Tate’s fantasy owners knew Jones would feed him the ball. Tate is still worth playing in PPR leagues if he’s active, and Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton should both see around seven targets targets, as well.MORE WEEK 14:Waiver pickups | FAAB planning | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff SOST.Y. Hilton injury updateHilton said Wednesday that he’s unsure if he’ll make it back this season, but that he’s “doing everything (he) can.” The Colts play Sunday at 1 p.m. ET against Tampa Bay’s weak secondary as Hilton battles a calf injury.Hilton’s comments at least make it sound like he’ll be out another week, pushing Zach Pascal into No. 1 duties again coming off an 100-yard game. Against the Bucs, Pascal can be used as a WR3. It looks like Parris Campbell might be back from injury to take over No. 2 duties from Marcus Johnson.MORE WEEK 14 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup BuilderIs JuJu Smith-Schuster playing Week 14?Smith-Schuster told reporters Wednesday that he considers himself “week-to-week.” He added that he’s running but not cutting yet. The Steelers play in Arizona at 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday.It sounds like JuJu will miss at least another week. In his absence, James Washington will remain the only playable Pittsburgh wideout. Consider him at least a FLEX option in a favorable fantasy matchup with the Cardinals. MORE WEEK 14: Sleepers | Busts | Start ’em, sit ’emParris Campbell injury newsCampbell (hand) was a full participant in Colts practice Wednesday. He hasn’t played since Week 9, but looks likely to return to face Tampa Bay on Sunday while Hilton will probably be out.Campbell’s last game was his best (five catches for 53 yards in Week 9). He likely slots right in as the No. 2 WR behind Zach Pascal (although Marcus Johnson could still maintain that role), making Campbell at least an interesting DFS play against such a bad pass defense. It looks like only one of the three top-10 WRs dealing with injuries for Week 14 is likely to play, and that’s Julio Jones. Both Adam Thielen and T.Y. Hilton have arrows pointing downward as we get closer to the weekend. The wide receiver rankings will also be affected by the statuses of Golden Tate, JuJu Smith-Schuster and rookie Parris Campbell, and we have updates on all of them below as you get ready to make your crucial fantasy start ’em, sit ’em decisions for the first round the playoffs.For updates on banged-up TEs Evan Engram, Greg Olsen, Gerald Everett, and David Njoku, click here; for news on injured RBs Dalvin Cook, Josh Jacobs, Marlon Mack, and more, go here. Follow us on Twitter for more news and updates @SN_Fantasy.last_img read more
